1843 Brooklyn New York letter install heat city jail

Letter from David Anderson to James G Bergen, Fort Hamilton Post Office, Kings County, New York. Anderson writes that he has inspected the wing of the jail and range of the cells situated in the City of Brooklyn. He writes he will agree to manufacture proper hot water apparatus for each story of cell that will distribute a sufficient and healthful heat. It will consume only about half the fuel that the present hot air flue does. The cost for each story will be $450. All the work will be done by Masons. Let him know soon as winter is approaching. Letter is posted Aug 11 (1843) New York.
